Visualize and interpret location data with the Interactive map component.

[This topic is pre-release and is subject to change.]

Easily bring dynamic mapping capabilities into your canvas apps by viewing the physical position of entities from a data source, or by inputting new physical locations.

Pan, tilt, zoom, and drag to center your map view. As you zoom out, the markers will optionally cluster to represent dense groups of data.

The current location of the user can also be represented on the map on mobile devices or web experiences.

The map component also supports road and satellite views.

To use the component, you need to enable geospatial features for the environment in addition to enabling geospatial features for each app that you want to use it in.


Use the component

Insert the component into your app as you normally would for any other control or component.

With an app open for editing in the Power Apps studio:

  1. Open the Insert tab.
  2. Expand Media.
  3. Select the component Map to place it in the center of the app screen, or drag it to position it anywhere on the screen.
  4. (Optional) Select Allow in the window that asks to know your location. This enables the component to display the user’s current location.

You can modify the component by using a number of properties.

Properties

The following properties can be defined and configured in the component’s Properties pane.

Note that some properties are only available on the Advanced tab in the Properties pane, in the More options section.
